343 Industries are gearing up to launch Halo: The Master Chief Collection on November 11th and pre-order bonuses are already available online.

Bringing together Halos 1, 2, 3 and 4 all in one disc, each game in the Master Chief Collection features its own single and multi-player suite, DLC maps and original gaming engine, with a dedicated server for multiplayers. Players purchasing the game will also be invited to beta test Halo 5: Guardians and have access to the Halo Nightfall live action TV series.

Gamestop and EB Games were first to launch their pre-order bonus online, and any player who places their order now will receive the Bandana Skull as an added feature. The Bandana Skull gives players the upper hand during intense firefights in every one of the four games, as it provides unlimited grenades and ammo and will make "Legendary" difficulty seem like a breeze. For gamers this is the equivalent of hitting the jackpot at, who also offer bonuses for new players. With the Bandana Bonus skull enabled there won't be any need to hunt down ammo and grenades to stay alive, and you could complete and entire campaign marathon with this bonus skill, a feat that would otherwise have proved impossible.

Gamestop and EB Games are not the only two retailers to offer a pre-bonus reward, if you pre-order from Amazon you'll get the PiƱata Skull which has the very effective action of making enemies drop every time they are punched. This skull will be a valuable bonus in every one of the campaigns and its benefits will be easy to take advantage of as the game play unfolds.

The Grunt Funeral Skull is also making a comeback, after having been featured in Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary back in 2011, and if you place a pre-order with BestBuy this skull will be yours. The Grunt Funeral Skull makes grunts explode in a blaze of glory and plasma, making combat that little more entertaining.

With the November release date still awhile away, many more pre-order bonuses are set to crop up, adding to Halo: The Master Chief Collection's already broad appeal.
